I had expected it to be presented in that way as I had been having a chat with a friend who is into Classic Dr Who about the lost serials. He mentioned that they had taken that approach with the final episode.
Think it was better that I knew in advance rather than it being a surprise.
I just watched Tomb Of The Cybermen. Really enjoyed it will post more impressions tomorrow. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts Jawa.
Just watched eight episodes back to back Do I start on The Mind Robber or leave it all until tomorrow?
I think I may be hooked Matt you have excellent taste
Watched storyline 5, The Tomb of the Cybermen, episode 1.
The opening credits have been updated! A wee bit shorter but still pretty swish.. Oh, and we have a new Doctor... behold Patrick Troughton and we promptly discover that he is four-hundred-and-fifty years old .
I had never seen Troughton in the lead role before. I love his "special technique"..."I keep me eyes open and my mouth shut" .
The ending was a wee bit odd... was it a real Cyberman that appeared? Onto the next episode!
Watched storyline 5, The Tomb of the Cybermen, episode 3.
After the Doctor and (most of...) the team escaped back through the hatch, the Cybermen released a raft of Cybermats... and they're on the attack! . The Doctor then steps up with a "metal breakdown" gag .
Things finish up in a darker style with a gunshot ringing out... and the credits roll .

What have you got?
I picked up the Beginnings box set, City Of Death and Pyramids Of Mars a long time ago. I had intended to see some Classic Who but didn't get around to it, so I'm glad you started the club
I bought The Keys Of Marinus, The Sensorites and Planet Of Giants a couple of weeks ago. I had enjoyed the serials so far so wanted to pick up a few more.
I have the Tenth Planet on order and my list of serials is growing I'm going to order The Mind Robber as I really enjoyed it.
I was going to try and get all of the first Doctors Serials that are available and then see how I feel about the other Doctors based on Classic Who Club
Do you have any that you would recommend to prioritise over others or that you wouldn't pick up?
For the First Doctor I'd really recommend The Aztecs, The Rescue & The Romans set and The Space Museum & The Chase set. The first is still quite early on. Rescue and Romans follow Dalek Invasion. The Space Museum and The Chase are just before The Time Meddler. The Chase is a long one to. The War Machines is good as well.
Cant wait to hear what you think of the Beginnings set.
Hi club members! The new story will be unleashed for you this Friday (if all goes to plan) and its a biggy. So likely hood is I'll have to start removing the older eps from here. You best grab the earliest asap in case they vanish.
Also any progress reports? I know Grum is itching to talk to people about these stories!
